Organizing a wedding can be a daunting task which is why Ahuva have a full range of what you’ll need to organise your event. This starts with a range of invitations from the traditional multi-coloured paper to innovative options such as mini-prayer shawls (talitot) or in full box sets which include RSVP cards and Thank You Cards. We also stock benchers which are the small pray books used at the end of the meal to say the to thank G-d for the food that has just been consumed.
No Hebrew nuptials would be complete without two of the most important ingredients. First is the wedding canopy under which the bride and groom and joined together. This can be something simple and elegant of a dramatic piece of art that will hang in the marital home for evermore. We have nearly 50 different varieties to suit all tastes and they can be customized to add a special touch. View our range here Chuppah – Wedding Canopy
Another key ingredient for the marriage is the breaking of the glass. While the breaking of a glass is often thought of as a happy event because it signals the official close of the wedding, it is really meant to bring a touch of sadness to the event by recalling the destruction of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem by the Romans in the year 97 CE. It is an essential element of the event and no traditional nuptials would be complete without it. We stock glass creations that have been sourced exclusively for the purpose of being broken under the Wedding Canopy. The broken shards can be displayed in our Mezuzot, in a specially built Frame, Vase or Menorah. They are available on our site in gold, silver, blue, purple, pink or emerald green. Each one comes with its own pouch secured by a draw string to keep it clean and the contents safe so they can be cherished for many years to come.
The final necessary ingredient, apart from the bride, groom and witnesses is the Marriage Contract. In Hebrew, it’s called a Ketubah and more than one are called Ketubot. The traditional transaction is, in many ways, the man making a promise to care for his wife. But more than a general statement of intent, a marriage in Judaism is a legally binding transaction. The man MUST ensure for his wife’s welfare, even in the event of divorce, and he promises in the marriage contract to do so. Should he fail to do so, he will be liable to punishment by the Religious Court system.
In modern times, these contracts have become incredible works of art to be displayed with pride is a noticeable area of the marital home. We have a range of over 120 different ketobot for you to choose from. Styles vary from traditional to modern and everything in between. They all have empty spaces so you can include the names of the happy couple and room for the witnesses to attest that they saw the event and all the necessary regulations were complied with.
